The Atoka County Commissioners held their weekly meeting Monday, September 05, 2020, at 10:00 a.m.
In attendance for the meeting were: Chairman Commissioner Shane Tomlinson, Vice-Chairman Commissioner Gilbert Wilson, Commissioner Marvin Dale, County Clerk Christie Henry, Sheriff Tony Head, Assessor Joe McClour, and Emergency Medical Services (EMS) Director Randy Bryant.
The Board approved the blanket purchase orders. There was only one this week for Fugate Rock in the amount of $1,200 to District One for gravel.
There were three non-compliance purchase orders that were approved by the Commissioners. The reason the purchase orders fell into non-compliance was due to not encumbering a purchase order prior to purchase or dates do not match.
The ball is rolling on the paint project. Due to being short staffed, the Sheriff will need a little help from Courthouse Maintenance personnel to supervise the inmates.
Once the paint colors are chosen, Sheriff Tony Head will begin the task of renting a lift for the work crew to reach the higher areas.
The monthly reports from the Health Department and County Clerk were approved.
A Jailer/Dispatcher commission has been granted to Mary Golden.
Representatives from the Atoka County Medical Center were present at the meeting.
During a hospital board meeting the following items were declared surplus: six Stryker gurneys, two Hill Rom hospital beds, one SR Scale, an Olympic Warmette for blankets, a Kodak Direct view CRG 75 system, an exam bed, and a Thermo Scientific Forma 1800 series.
The Commissioners approved the declared surplus list for the Hospital Administration.
The hospital is currently caring for 16 patients. The pandemic has slowed down the process, but the Administration advised the board that the hospital is currently working to come out of bankruptcy. The Atoka County Medical Center has hired an appraisal company to help with the process.
